These are sad times in the United States of America.
All the senseless deaths in Florida this week have really weighed heavily on my heart and mind.
The mass shootings of innocent human beings have happened so many times before and, unless things change, they will happen again.
Each individual must determine what she or he can do to make things better.
Taking action is always better than giving up in discouragement.
For today, my thoughts are with the heartbroken families who have lost loved ones.
May the deaths of those precious human beings, as well as those who previously died by gun violence, not be in vain.
May they rest in eternal peace.
